FLINT. HIGH TI DE. There was an exceptionally high tide on Satur- day night last; and an exciciag scene was witnes- sed among the inhabitants along the sea shore. The sea flowed into several of these dwellings, and moved the furniture about. Such a high tide has not been known since the year 1880. FLAT IN DISTRESS. During the storm on Saturday, a flat hailing from Flint, and commanded by Captain Stephen Bithell, was blown ashore just opposite Dawpool; and the crew were for some hours in a most peri- lous condition and it was with some difficulty that their lives were saved. WOMEN'S TEMPERANCE UNION. There was a very large attendance of the members of the above union on Monday night last at St. Mary's Mount, where Mrs. Dr. Hum- phrey Williams entertained them in a most agree- able manner. The gathering was enlivened by songs, recitations, and instrumental music, to- gether with one or two encouraging addresses. The meeting terminated with a most hearty vote of thanks to the hostess for her kind and generous hospitality. FLINTSHIRE LIBERAL ASSOCIATION. ANNUAL MEETING The annual meeting of the Association was held at Flint on Wednesday—Dr. Easterby, St. Asaph, presiding. There was a good atten- dance, and letters of apology for absence were read from Mr. E. C. Muspratt (Rhyl), Mr. P. Jones (Halkyn), Mr. E. Bryan (Holywell), Mr. S. Smith, M.P., and Mr. J. Herbert Lewis, M.P. The following officers were re-elected President, Mr. M. A. Ralli, Rhyl treasurer, Mr. T. Parry, Mold secretary, Mr. Harding Roberts, Holywell registration officers, Messrs. Mostyn Williams (Rhyl) and J. Morgan (Mold). Delegates were appointed to attend the forthcoming National Liberal Con- ference at Norwich. The registration offieers submitted the annual report, which showed a satisfactory result. The balance-sheet showed a small balance in hand. ENGLISH PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH, CHESTER ROAD. On Wednesday evening, a Social Meeting in connection with the Young People's Society of Christian Endeavour was held, when the members sat down to a nice tea, supplied by the Social Committee, after which a lecture on Shetland and the Shetlanders' was delivered (illustrated with magic lantern views), by the Rev. W. Scott, Congregational minister, Southport. The lecture was a most interesting, instructive, and humorous; and the reverend gentleman spoke for over two hours, keeping his audience spell- bound, while he described the position, climate, and gave a general description of the island, and graphically related the manners, customs, habits af the inhabitants, together with some of their Folk-lore. The Rev. David Edwards (pastor) manipulated the lantern and Mr. O. W. Jones, president of the society, presided. A hearty vote of thanks to the lecturer was proposed; and the lecturer, in responding, thanked the audience for manifesting one of the characte- ristics of the Shetlauders viz., 'patience,' by the attentive hearing which they gave him. TRADE OUT-LOOK, The beginning of this year was very anxiously Looked forward to by the tradespeople, and others. as there were various and persistent rumours that we were going to witness a considerable revJra.1 in rade; so far, however, these hopes have not been realised. The United Alkali Company have recently ieclared a dividend on ordinary shares of 2s. per ihare for the half year ending December 31st last. rhis, together with a dividend of. 1 per cent. which was declared on the previous half year, makes a iividend for the year of one and a half per cent. )n the original value of the shares; but as these an now be bought for about £.3, it may be taken. La equal to a dividend of five per cent. But notwithstanding this slight evidence of improvement, locally the chemical trade seems to, be as bad as ever and there are still a very large Dumber of men out of employment. It is stated, however, that a new plant which has been put up at an enormous cost is just about to be completed and is expected to make a start very shortly. This, we understand, will give employment to a few more men. We are glad to state that at the Red Pits Col- liery the out-look is much better and they are gradually adiing to the number of workmen every week. The railway company have taken on a. conside. rable number of men during the last few weeks, and are vigorously pushing forward with the widening of the line.
